The East Center pool replacement is nearing completion nearly two-and-a-half years after it closed to GVR members. 

A ribbon-cutting is scheduled for Dec. 15, though the pool won't open for at least a couple of weeks afterward. Some amenities include full-length swim lane, a deeper synchronized swim area, three permanent shade structures, and a 14-person spa.

The GVR East Center ribbon-cutting ceremony is Thursday, Dec. 15, from 1 to 3 p.m., featuring live music by Mike Finkelstein and Friends, food and caroling.

The pool won't open for a couple of weeks after that.
